What are surveys carried on board?

List of surveys carried onboard:
  1. Classification  surveys
  2. Continuous Hull Surveys ( CHS )
  3. Continuous Machinery Survey ( CMS )
  4. Quarterly listing from class

Ship owner had to present all items at the time of surveys at one go which causes undue delays & huge work load, to avoid this system of continuous survey was initiated. In this different items are opened / inspected on a continuous basis during 5 yrs at ship owner’s convenience
